Complete a Bachelor's Degree Online After Community College
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News
Jan 20, 2017
“For Nathan Legleiter, a Kansas resident who works as a compliance analyst at a bank, community college was just the first step of a post-secondary education. During his first semester, Legleiter learned about a "2+2" option, or online bachelor's completion program, that would enable him to seamlessly transfer credits to the Kansas State University Global Campus, the school's online arm for adult learners. Attending Barton Community College not only allowed the 2015 graduate to save some money on tuition, he says, but also provided him with face-to-face student support nearby and the flexibility of online learning alongside his job and family responsibilities.”

Democrats blast Trump's pick for Education Secretary

“(Corrects in 6th paragraph to clarify rules) By Lisa Lambert WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrats sliced holes in billionaire Betsy DeVos' credentials to be the next U.S. Education Secretary at a confirmation hearing on Tuesday, raising doubts whether President-elect Donald Trump's pick will win approval in the full Senate. The nomination of DeVos to head an agency that sets policy for younger children and universities and also administers a college financial aid program of $1 trillion has outraged Democrats who believe the Michigan Republican wants to dismantle public education. Teachers unions, a major constituency for the party, roundly oppose DeVos, a philanthropist and investor.”

Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump’s choice to lead the Department of Education, indicated that she is open to radically rethinking the federal government’s role in education on issues from sexual assault cases on college campuses to cutting federal support for the nation’s public schools in a contentious confirmation hearing Tuesday evening. Democratic senators repeatedly pressed DeVos to spell out her specific vision for the Department of Education, but the education activist and billionaire from Michigan kept mostly to generalities, outlining a broad vision of school choice in which parents could use state money to send their kids to private or charter schools.”

Artists who "objectify women and make sexist comments in their songs" are not being invited, they say.  The banned performers include Punjabi rappers Yo Yo Honey Singh and Badshah among others. These singers are currently very popular in India thanks in part to their musical involvement in Bollywood films.  But their tunes have earned the ire of young women.  One of the student union heads said, "We are trying to propagate the ideas of feminism and equality, while these artists are using their art form to demean women. The lyrics of their songs are offensive, abusive and completely opposite of what we are taught in college." DU colleges have traditionally been among the most active and socially conscious institutions in India and they continue their fight against patriarchy and misogyny.  So, more power to the girls!

Under Cuomo's plan, which he called the first of its kind in the nation, the state would cover tuition for any student from a family earning less than $125,000 a year by 2019, a means-tested benchmark that coincided with one proposed by Hillary Clinton in her failed presidential bid.

9 people the internet made famous in 2016
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News
Jan 01, 2017
“In 2016, the internet gave us dancing teenagers, sad grandparents, Star Wars masks, red crewneck sweaters and more white Vans than we could count. SEE ALSO: 5 of the biggest fake news stories from 2016 From Chewbacca Mom to Ken Bone, for better or for worse, this year gave us a fresh batch of internet celebrities to keep track of or, more likely, forget about until right now. 1. The "Damn, Daniel!" dudes Joshua Holz and Daniel Lara are the teens who made it impossible to wear white Vans without someone pointing to your shoes and shouting "Damn, Daniel!" Thanks to their video, posted to Twitter back in February, the pair ended up on Ellen DeGeneres's couch where Lara received a lifetime supply of white Vans sneakers, many of which he donated. Nowadays Holz and Lara are focused on their budding entertainment careers. As they told Cosmopolitan , Lara's interesting in modeling and theater, while Holz is more focused on video shooting and editing. They've still got plenty of time for homework and swim practice, though. 2. Chewbacca Mom Candace Payne shrieked her way to internet stardom thanks to an electric Chewbacca mask and the power of Facebook Live.  Now at 164.5 million views, her livestream lead to the nickname Chewbacca Mom, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of perks and, most recently, a deal with TLC for two digital series. It pays to be Chewbacca Mom. 3. The teens behind the #RunningManChallenge #RunningmanChallenge  @jerrygunnz  By @malachi_variations IB By @Rah2bandz A video posted by Kevin Sözé 落 (@11.oo7) on Jan 6, 2016 at 6:41pm PST If you regularly have Ghost Town DJs' 1995 song "My Boo" stuck in your head, you have Kevin Vincent and Jeremiah Hall to thank. The high school students from Hillside, New Jersey, pioneered this year's Running Man Challenge, a meme that took off after a version made by two Maryland University basketball players went viral.  The meme blew up from there and lead Vincent and Hall all the way to LA for an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a check for $10,000. The pair also took over Ellen's Snapchat for live coverage from the VMAs. They even have their own website dedicated to the Running Man Challenge. 4. Sad Papaw dinner with papaw tonight...❤️ he made 12 burgers for all 6 grandkids and I'm the only one who showed.  love him pic.twitter.com/0z0DkPtUiR — kelsey harmon (@kelssseyharmon) March 17, 2016 After five of Kenneth Harmon's six grandchildren failed to show up for family dinner in March, the lone attendee — his granddaughter Kelsey — snapped a photo of Kenneth looking deeply rejected. The photo quickly picked up steam around the internet and gave way to Kenneth's new nickname, Sad Papaw.  Thousands of retweets later, the internet was clamoring to help cheer up papaw. That's when Kelsey announced that her grandfather would hold a burger cookout for anyone who wanted to attend. Naturally, kind people came out on droves to hang out with Kenneth, snag a "Sad Pawpaw" t-shirt and try one of his burgers.  The lesson here: If you want to make your grandpa famous, just let him down publicly. 5. Boomer Phelps Dad and I got to spend some father son time today after I went to doctors.... We watched women's gymnastic trials!!#usa #roadtorio A photo posted by boomer phelps (@boomerrphelps) on Jul 9, 2016 at 12:32pm PDT If there's anyone who managed to momentarily overshadow Michael Phelps at the Rio Olympics, it was his son Boomer Phelps seated poolside in the arms of his mom Nicole Johnson. (Sorry, Ryan Lochte.) While Phelps entered retirement following his return from Rio, his infant son Boomer continues to make a name for himself on Instagram. At 7-months-old, Boomer has amassed an impressive following to the tune of 770,000 followers and counting. It's pretty obvious why. 6. James Charles, Covergirl's first male model So I retook my senior photos & brought my ring light with me so my highlight would be poppin. I love being extra  pic.twitter.com/7Qu1yu8U2P — James Charles (@jamescharles) September 5, 2016 Seventeen-year-old James Charles already had a prominent YouTube following when his delightful senior photos blew up on Twitter.  More than 37,000 retweets later, Charles snagged a campaign with Covergirl to serve as the cosmetics brand's first male cover model. He even got to hang with Katy Perry in the process. I can finally announce that I am officially a new @COVERGIRL.  First boy ever & I am so excited to see whats coming! #COVERGIRLJames pic.twitter.com/0wVHJYQ9M9 — James Charles (@jamescharles) October 11, 2016 7. Ken Bone pick up the phone babyyou know im ken bone baby pic.twitter.com/eS0o0NVakG — Hoodie Allen (@HoodieAllen) October 10, 2016 At first, we loved Ken Bone. The second Bone stood to ask a question during the presidential debate on Oct. 9, the internet was smitten. That name! His red sweater! Those rosy cheeks! Even Snoop Dogg wanted to smoke with him. Then Bone made the fatal error of publicly sharing his Reddit username for an AMA that was supposed to bolster his celebrity. Instead, it revealed a seedier side of Bone we'd yet to see but should have known was coming. Nothing is pure. BONUS: This viral Christmas ad is giving us all the holiday feels”

Death to the SAT!!!
by Education: News & Videos about Education - CNN.com

“Early on, in the 1950s, Robert Sternberg flubbed IQ tests, and his elementary school branded him a loser. "As a result of my low scores, my teachers thought I was stupid, and I did too," he writes in his passionate new book, College Admissions for the 21st Century. "They never came out and told us our IQ scores, but one could tell from the way the teachers acted I was a mediocre student, which made my teachers happy because they got what they expected." In a "self-fulfilling prophecy," Sternberg performed a little bit worse each year. But he lucked out in fourth grade when a teacher "had high expectations for me." He got A's and altered his "entire future trajectory."”
